This product claims to visually plumps and revolumizes the sunken cheeks and laugh lines that give skin an older appearance. With a recontoured look, the face quickly takes on a more youthful appearance.
* Visibly adds volume to plump the skin and visually smooth laugh lines
* Helps reshape natural facial contours over time
* Self-sculpting brush gives you the power to restore youthful contours
The texture of this product is a cross between a night cream and a mattifying primer or pore filler. A little goes a long way, and I do notice improved plumpness and “bounce” to my skin after use. Instructions state to use this during the day and let dry 30 seconds before applying moisturizer. I have only ever used it as part of my night time routine because I am leery of layering too many products underneath my makeup. I’ll have to give it a try and report back on how this would hold up.
The website describes it as a “medium weight cream” but I think it is a little more on the heavy side. “This exclusive doctor designed formula gives you the appearance of younger looking skin with hyaluronic acid, peptides and Adipofill'in Complex. A little bit goes a long way to visually plump, fill and reshape facial contours. Don't let gravity be your destiny.”
* leave on mask
* apply a thin layer to cleansed skin
* let dry for 30 sec then apply moisturizer or sunscreen
I was lucky to find this at TJ Maxx for an affordable price, and would definitely recommend you give this a try if you do the same.

Pixi Beauty sent this wonderful PR package to me last month and I am super grateful for their generosity! I am a big fan of their Glow Tonic and have used it pretty religiously since they sent me my first giant bottle back in December. You can read my thoughts on the Pixi Glow Tonic Toner in a blog from a few months ago HERE. This PR package included a travel size Glow Tonic Toner along with several other products from their Glow Tonic line.
I've been focusing on using up some of my current skincare so I haven't cracked these babies open yet (besides the travel toner because I can't even go a weekend without it). But here is some more information straight from their website.

What is your favorite skincare or beauty product that you have purchased on Amazon Prime?
I have been a Younique Presenter for almost 5 years, and sell a lot more casually than I used to as my priorities have changed. BUT this is one of the products I 100% stand by. I personally use the nude shades more than the bold ones, and these are 3 of my favorites.
I’m a fan of liquid lipsticks, but because they are matte they can often dry out my already parched lips. The reason I reach for this formula more than any other, is because it contains vitamins C & E so it doesn’t dehydrate my lips.
As you can see in my swatches, the texture is velvety and opaque. My top 3 nude shades are: Sublime, Sympathetic & Stellar but more have been added to the collection!

Remember to always exfoliate your lips before applying any matte lip product for best results.
This enzyme peel resurfaces skin to create a soft, smooth, healthy looking glow.
✨Papaya Fruit Enzymes loosen seas skin cells
✨Lactic Acid gently exfoliates
✨Cellulose Peels & Sugar Cane Extract polishes, lifting away dullness & revealing brighter skin.
While this is an enzyme peel, it also contains a very fine physical exfoliant. I have really enjoyed using this product and recommend it for most skin types. A little bit goes a long way!
🗓Use 2-3 times per week in the AM or PM
🤩Apply to clean & dry face and neck
⏰Leave on for 2 minutes to activate enzymes
➕Gently massage in circular motions for a more intense polish
💦Rinse & pat dry
This Pixi Beauty Glow Mud Mask contains ginseng, aloe vera & mineral rich mud to deep clean pores and energize skin, leaving a healthy glow. This mask claims to be for all skin types, but especially congested or dull skin. I always caution those with very dry or sensitive skin that mud masks may not be best for them, but I did not find this to be very drying like others I’ve tried in the past.
Apply a thin layer all over your face, avoiding the eye area. After 15 minutes, this dries down to a slate color and can be washed off. Use 2-3 times per week before bed. I like to follow this up with Glow Tonic Toner & remember to always mask on clean skin! ✨

I don't know about you, but if I am doing a little online shopping and there's an option to get free shipping when you spend a certain amount, I'm gonna make it happen! So when my mom asked for some new eyeshadow for Mother's Day, I turned to ColourPop. I really enjoy their easy to use Super Shock eyeshadow formula, and picked up a palette that coordinated. I was so close to that free shipping threshold, and I had really been wanting to add a few fun colors to my collection...so I purchased the Mar palette for myself.
I really liked that there was a mix of both neutral and bold colors, satins, metallics and mattes.
Sorbet makes for a beautiful warm orange-toned crease color and blended well for a matte.
The satins & metallics all blended easily and I sprayed my eyeshadow brush with rose water to pick up and intensify the blues. The only shade I found difficult to work with was the dark matte brown shade, Top Down. I found that packing the color made it a little less patchy looking but I ended up layering Detour over it anyway. I also appreciated having everything I needed in ONE palette. Transition/crease color, highlight, bold and neutral shades. I hate having to dip into multiple palettes, especially if I am doing a tutorial. I have seen mixed reviews on this palette, but for the price I think it’s a YES if you want something a little different and travel-friendly in your collection.
I decided to do something a little bold for my birthday look last week. Because who doesn't want to wear blue eyeshadow while doing everyday things like eating pizza and getting a pedicure. #extra
1️⃣Place cream shadow in the shade VICTORIOUS all over eye area to create a bare canvas and act as a primer.
2️⃣Use a fluffy blending brush to place the shade SORBET into the crease and up onto the browbone.
3️⃣Place the shade TOP DOWN into the outer corner. I packed the color on somewhat with a shader brush.
4️⃣In the middle of the lid, place GRIDLOCK vertically from lashline to crease.
5️⃣On the bare section closest to your nose, place the shade HWY and blend very slightly into the last shade to create a gradient effect.
6️⃣On the outer corner of the eye, place the shade DETOUR and blend slightly past where we placed top down.
7️⃣Place EL REY in the very inner corner of the eye. You can also place this under the arch of your brow.
8️⃣Using a small crease brush, place the shade WILD ONE on lower lash line starting at the outer corner and blending inward.
9️⃣Touch up SORBET in the crease if needed.
You could definitely create a cut crease to make this look more crisp, but that's just not a technique I tend to use. Here are the products I used for this look in case you want to check them out for yourself!

Do you know the new buzzword in the beauty industry? “Screen Face” - skin damage caused by our dependence on digital technology. Aside from contributing to gradual vision loss and sleep problems, blue light is also causing you to look a lot older than you actually are. The skin around your eyes is one of the thinnest and most sensitive areas of your body, and becomes the most damaged when exposed to blue light, resulting in: 👇🏼
I have been loving these Anti-Blue Light Glasses from Topfoxx: http://bit.ly/2O0FU7B
(So much, that I am wearing them as we speak.)
This Audrey in Tortoise style is already sold out and other styles are running low! Use code FANCY15 to save $$$ and your eyes while you can! http://bit.ly/2O0FU7B
TIP: You can also adjust the settings on your phone to reduce the blue light. Definitely set your phone to dim a few hours before you typically go to bed to prevent blue light-induced insomnia!
(I received these products complimentary for testing purposes.)
I have been testing out the Rouge Signature Matte Colored Lip Inks by L'Oréal Paris. The shades I have include: I Create, I Am Worth It, and I Rule. They have such a unique texture and formula compared to all of my other lip products! I did a video with my review and swatches if you are interested!
